#9: Morrigan

Series: Darkstalkers
Debut: Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
Premise: Darkstalkers 4

Complex Says: Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers has risen in popularity over the other characters in the series. She has been ranked as one of the sexiest video game characters of all time. Morrigan would sneak out of her castle at night in search of excitement.. By Darkstalkers 3, she finds and defeats Lillith, a piece of Morrigan’s soul removed by her adoptive father, Berial, when she was a youth. Since merging with Lillith, Morrigan has regained her full power as an S-class Darkstalker.

Fans of the Darkstalkers series argue that Morrigan is the true star of the series though the honor belongs to the face of the series, Demitri. Unlike Demitri, Morrigan has found a way out of the Darkstalkers series and into Capcom’s crossover games, and at times serving as the sole representative of her series (Marvel vs. Capcom and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.) We can foresee Morrigan starring in the latest installment of the Darkstalkers series (whenever that will be) as the Queen of the Makai, a role she has assumed after the passing of her father, Belial (official of the storyline due to her quote in MvC3.)
